(Reuters) – Chez Reavie took advantage of a three-shot swing at the 17th hole to win his first PGA Tour event in 11 years by four strokes at the Travelers Championship on Sunday.

Reavie birdied the penultimate hole where challenging fellow American Keegan Bradley made double-bogey at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.

Making mostly pars, the 37-year-old saw much of a six-stroke overnight lead evaporate but his one-under 69 was enough see him hang on for the victory at 17-under 263.

He had not won on tour since the 2008 RBC Canadian Open.

Bradley and compatriot Zack Sucher tied for second at 13-under after both shot 67s.

Vaughn Taylor (65) finished fourth at 12-under, while England’s Paul Casey (65) shared fifth with Chile’s Joaquin Niemann (66) and Kevin Tway (67) who were another stroke back.
